Funding Opportunity Title: Climate Program Office FY 2017
Announcement Type: Initial
Funding Opportunity Number: NOAA-OAR-CPO-2017-2004896
Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 11.431, Climate and Atmospheric Research

NOAA's Climate Program Office (CPO) supports competitive research through five major Programs: Climate Observations and Monitoring (COM); Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, and Climate (AC4); Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP); Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP); and Climate and Societal Interactions (CSI).

Through this Announcement, CPO’s Programs are seeking applications for 7 individual competitions in FY 2017. Investigators are highly encouraged to learn more about CPO and its Programs, as well as specific Program priorities for FY 2017, prior to submitting applications. This information, along with the names and contact information of relevant Competition Managers, is provided in Program information sheets that can be found at the following website:

We estimate that $10 million will be available through this Announcement in FY 2017 for approximately 100 new awards pending budget appropriations. It is anticipated that most awards will be at a funding level between $50,000 and $300,000 per year, with some exceptions for larger awards.

Specifically, NOAA's Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, and Climate (AC4) Program has released this solicitation of particular interest to the carbon cycle community.

General Information

CPO manages competitive research programs through which NOAA funds high-priority climate science, assessments, decision support research, outreach, education, and capacity-building activities designed to advance the understanding of Earth’s climate system and to foster the application of this knowledge to enable effective decisions. CPO supports research that is conducted across the United States and internationally. In support of NOAA's priorities across all Line Offices, CPO makes investments in observational infrastructure and environmental intelligence that help communities become more resilient. CPO also provides strategic guidance for the agency’s climate science and services programs and supports NOAA’s contributions to the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) and its National Climate Assessment and similar international endeavors.
